Here are the 10 most expensive NFT images sold to date, from Beeple’s record to Edward Snowden’s recipe | Artnet news – Mail Bonus

Cryptocurrency may be in a knot, causing some NFT collectors to fear long-term prospects for their new investments. We could get some clarity on the NFT.NYC conference, which takes place in New York this week (June 20-23).

To reflect the market, we have compared the 10 largest NFT sales to date with our market estimates in December, June and March.

It’s not surprising that Beeple’s All days – The first 5000 days is still the yardstick by which all other NFTs are ranked. The artwork, a collection of over 13 years of the artist’s daily drawing project, opened for bid for only $ 100 before rising to $ 69 million and became the third most expensive work by a living artist to be sold at auction.

The sale of Christie’s New York opened floodgates for the NFT market and everything that followed, including our new number two largest NFT sale, Pak’s Clock.

The work, which represents the number of days Julian Assange has been in prison, was part of the “censored” NFT collection, which was sold to cover the legal costs of the Wikileaks founder, who is fighting extradition to the United States from London (UK, however, recently granted extradition). . The winner, a group of 10,000 people called AssangeDAO, paid out $ 52 million.

In some ways, Pak could also take the top spot completely. The anonymous artist also sold one work, The unification, on Nifty Gateway in 266,445 shares. The nearly 30,000 buyers jointly paid $ 91.8 million – but it seems unlikely that one owner will ever be able to combine part of the work into one whole.

But apart from Pak’s notable entry on the list, the rest of the top 10 have remained relatively stagnant in the first half of the year, with only one other new entry. (Compare that to the turnover between our March and June list in 2021, when eight of the top 10 lost their places.)

Falling from the list this time is an early XCOPY work by Mad Dog Jones, Someone stupidrumors that he belongs to rapper Snoop Dawg, as well as him Replicatorwhich went for $ 4.1 million in April 2021 to Phillips, making him Canada’s most expensive living artist.

Our top 10 only have works by one, besides NFT from popular series like the 10,000 piece CryptoPunks collection. Taking into account, there are no less than eight over $ 5.4 million reached by number 10 on our list, led by Cryptopunk # 5822which sold for a record $ 23.7 million in February.

Two other museums have also sold on par with our top 10: Calls # 109 from Ringer’s 1,000-piece Dmitri Cherniak’s collection at Art Blocks, which sold for $ 7.1 million in October, and Tpunk # 3443, purchased by renowned NFT collector and Tron founder Justin Sun for $ 10.5 million of the 10,000-piece Tpunks collection in August. (It should probably come with a star, though, as the project is the first NFT project on the Tron blockchain.)

Here is our updated list, based on the commercial value of Ether at the time of sale.
